Through slide presentations and discussion, students will gain a deeper understanding of the conversation that surrounds painting today. Post-Internet art, Casualism, Zombie Formalism, Provisional painting, the return of the figure, computer generated imagery, painting as installation, painting-sculpture hybrids, and the digital muse are among the topics that will be discussed. We will kick off the session by projecting images of each participant’s work. During the studio portion of the workshop, participants will create experimental projects using one of the following prompts: 1) Painting as sculpture, sculpture as painting; 2) Questioning the variables—supports, surfaces, materials; 3) Bad painting, good painting; 4) The artist’s book.
